Hey guys,

So this weekend I just couldnt put myself to paying R1000 for the new COD.

I took a look on Plati and found a Standard Edition key for R507 (Well this was the total with conversion fees on FNB)

So I was still skeptical and @Arise went half half with me on the game as an experiment, which he let me keep, thanks again bro :D

So basically you cannot use an existing Battle.Net account as far as I know, you have to use a VPN which has to have an option for a Russian server, I used Touch VPN which is a chrome extension.

So how does it work:

  1. So you VPN to RU, then you go to Battle.Net and create an account, you will see the region sets to RU automatically because of the VPN.
  2. Purchase the key from Plati (I used this seller so I know his keys are legit and instantly delivered --> Buy Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare (BATTLE.NET) RU/VPN+GIFT and download)
  3. On the Battle.Net window once you have activated you will see a redeem code box.
  4. Insert the Code, game gets redeemed.
  5. Turn off VPN and close Chrome.
  6. Log into Bnet as per normal with your new account details you just made.
  7. Enjoy! ;)
I thought I would just make this because it works and if one can benefit why not share it with the most loved tech community! :D

Have a lekker week everybody!

Disclaimer: I do not take responsibility if this method does not work for you or if you get hacked by the Russians.

Strange that battlenet hasn't tried blocking this way of buying keys.

I know steam have a few things in place to make this more difficult. With steam you have to provide a residential address in the country that you are buying from.

For example I bought a steam key using a VPN off of the UK steam store. Added a friends address in UK and it worked.

Also if you connect your VPN to russian, and then 5 min later connect back to South Africa, why cant they tracked that your game launcher has changed from one country to another and you have just teleported across the planet.

Anyway I would do this if it was another country. I don't mess with Mother Russians

for those on the fence, the game is totally worth it! Local servers too.

I paid R1200 (most I have ever paid for a game, for the deluxe or whatever edition) and I have no regret. Campaign is a bit short but so much fun and pulls you into the cinematics! MP is just good.

Yeah well I mean thats why you have to make and go into and redeem the code while on the actual Battle.Net site and not in the game app :)

Yea I've done this with Borderlands 3 and will probably do it with RDR2 as well , so far none of these games are region locked online so there is no problems once activated
